Keeping bad actors away from the #fediverse is a #social problem that cannot be solved with #technology alone. However technology is one tool we can use to reduce the negative impact of bad actors as a first line of defense.
For anyone interested using technology for keeping bad actors off of #Mastodon and the fedeiverse to the greatest extent possible, check out @Are0h website: https://thebad.space/about . It has an block-list API which in my opinion should be incorporated into the Mastodon reference implementation to make it easier for instance maintainers and system operators to share and coordinate efforts. Since (as far as I can see, at the time of this writing) these features are NOT built-in to the current Mastodon reference implementation, which shows an unfortunate lack of concern and understanding by the maintainers of mastodon.social, we have to resort to these round-about means to keep malicious users from attacking our communities.

I tried to take a selfie
when I was all alone.
I never should have done it.
It broke my mobile phone.
I guess I’m not so pretty.
I thought that I was cuter.
I snapped one with my laptop
and busted the computer.
I cracked my father’s camera.
My mother’s iPad too.
This shouldn’t be so difficult.
I don’t know what to do.
At last I got a selfie;
perhaps the worst one yet.
I posted it online today.
It broke the Internet.

I can relate very much to what you say, in particular after checking my "cheat sheet" on "#performativeBelief" 😉:
"...people ‘believe in belonging’, choosing #religious identifications to complement other social and emotional experiences of ‘#belongings’. The concept of ‘performative belief‘ helps explain how otherwise non-religious people can bring into being a #Christian identity related to #social belongings."
